A yellow chicken, really a member of the Eudora Parent Teacher Organization, slaps the hand Friday of third-grader Jarrett Durrant. The chicken urged third-graders on during the Eudora PTO's first jog-a-thon. Each student at Nottingham Elementary and Eudora West Elementary schools walked laps to earn money for the group. The youngsters brought in more than $12,000 through the fundraiser. See more pictures of the event on Page 9A.
